President TRUMP On PODESTA : ‘I Would Have Fired Him So Fast His Head Would Have Spun’ [VIDEO]
“Reporters with CNN asked President Donald Trump how the Podesta email leak compares with the leak that former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn misled the administration about his conversation with a Russian ambassador at a press conference Thursday, and his response was epic.
John Podesta was a top staffer in for former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during the 2016 race, and his emails were hacked, revealing that several high-profile members of the media colluded with the campaign, going so far as to give Clinton advance questions for a debate hosted on the network against Trump.
“In one case you are talking about highly classified information, in the other case you are talking about John Podesta saying bad things about the boss,” Trump responded. “I will say this, if John Podesta said that about me and he was working for me i would have fired hmm so fast his head would have spun. He said terrible things about her. but it wasn’t classified information.””
Former Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta fired back at President Donald Trump Thursday after Trump said Podesta “said terrible things” about Hillary Clinton in a series of hacked emails.
During his press conference Thursday, Trump was asked about the difference between the release of Podesta’s emails by Wikileaks during last year’s election campaign and recent leaks that led to the resignation of national security adviser Michael Flynn.
“In one case, you’re talking about highly classified information,” Trump responded. “In the other case, you’re talking about John Podesta saying bad things about the boss.
“I will say this,” Trump added, “if John Podesta said that about me and he was working for me, I would have fired him so fast your head would have spun. He said terrible things about her. But it wasn’t classified information.”
